Allied Esports is teaming up with Riot Games to host the next installment of the VALORANT Ignition Series.

Allied Esports Odyssey will feature six of the top teams in Europe, with G2 Esports—arguably the best team in the world—and Team Liquid—ScreaM’s new squad—taking center stage.

Underdogs Ninjas in Pyjamas and Giants Gaming will contend for the title, with up-and-comers ZypppanGoKill and BBL Esports looking to find an upset.

The tournament will take place over five days and include a €15,000 (roughly $18,000) prize pool.
